Almost there! Good 1.4 GHz krait processor, Adreno 305 will be great for games but 512MB RAM is not good enough

Coming from a user of the 8s not including a card slot unless you have 16 gb + is a terrible idea. The ever growing folder called other rapes my phone storage leaving me with 197 Mb with only 8 apps. So Huawei will get a lot of complaints from users when they realise they cant even take pictures or anything because there storage is full

So...they mad a Lumia 820 knockoff with a lousy camera, sub par display quality, half the NAND storage and cut out the expandable all while downgrading the GPU?

Only a complete moron would purchase this device if they had a choice of any of the Nokia WP8 lineup.

What a downgrade, the W1 is so much better and looks a lot sleeker. I'm gonna wait till the W3 before I upgrade from my W1. HUAWEI GET YO S*** TOGETHER!

I like the iphonish design. Dissapointed with the specs overall. Almost no improvements from W1. They should incorporate at least micro sd card slot. So yes, this one'll have to be less than 100 to be competitive.
